I'd say you have the digital input selected. The player does not see a digital signal and gives such message.
Select the analog input and you should be able to record.

Hope this helps.

Take the unit off of Digital input or use a compatible digital input source. DIN means Digital in and has to do with the word clock frequency that is recognized. I have had this in the Radio business a lot when people press buttons they don't know about. It is easy to fix.

Need to unlock din lock


By 'Unlock din', do you mean unlock the region the recorder uses, unlock the din input or unlock the tray or what?
When recording and you see 'unlocked', it means the DIGITAL signal you are trying to record is unclear or missing.
If you are trying to record a signal from another region disc, it will not copy. Add a little detail.

Getting error message "Din Unlock


That means you don't have a good DIgital INput (get it?) signal or bitstream. Correct the source's playback or connection.
It's on page 37 of the manual.

Why i am seeing DIN UNLOCK


If you are recording from a DIGITAL input like the OPTICAL or DIGITAL COAXIAL and their is no signal, or if it is a 'non-copyable' copy of a digital copy (from a mini-disc or protected audio CD-R) you will see this. You need to record using ANALOG inputs, then you won't have this DIN UNLOCK problem using analog. Double check your digital connections and make sure your digital source is set to 'play' and see if the DIN Unlock goes off. Otherwise, use analog reocrding only.

C71/DIN UNLOCK


The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder. Go analog.

What happens if you skip the receiver? Be advised that anything coming in digitally through a cable/satellite box may be muliti-channel and convertible by the player to its native 44.1 khz sampling rate.

Din Unlock - Unable to record


You must have the unit switched to "DIGITAL" input - switch it to "ANALOG" and record that way. The "DIN UNLOCK" is when you have the lack of a proper digital signal, or a digital signal with copy protection, like you cannot make a digital copy of a digital Minidisc, etc...Does that make sense? Let me know if the "Analog" setting works for you. Good luck.

I have a minidisc model mds e10


Hi,

it seems your MD unit is expecting a digital signal on the digital input causing this message to appear.
You need to connect a signal source to the digital input

or

connect an analog signal to an analog input and select the analog input as signal source.

In both cases the DIN UNLOCK message will then disappear.

Cheers

Din Unlock C71


Hi,

your deck is expecting a digital signal provided by optical cable.
Hence the error message you see. If you want to record using RCA cables, you will have to set your MD recoder so to use analog input.

Press the INPUT key repeatedly to select the Analog input, then connect your RCA cable to the Analog input and start recording.
You may have to adjust the recoding level (or volume if you will).

OR you get an optical cable and then use the Digital Input 1 or 2.

See page 11 of your user manual for detailed instructions.

Cheers

Error message


Din unlock means 'digital input is unlocked' meaning it is not receiving a signal on the **digita**l input you have selected. ( eg optical or single co-axial digital from another cd player etc) Check your connections and re-select the source using the front panel until you select the one you want. What are you recording from?
